Thomas John Ellis (yes, I am using his full name against him. In a good way of course) is a man of many talents. He plays the piano, sings beautifully and can embody any character. It’s interesting to note that before he became our favourite Devil, he played other notable characters. From Tom Milligan in Dr. Who to Robin Hood in Once Upon a Time and Dr. William Rush in Rush. When I went to his IMDb page and came across his acting credits, it surprised me to learn that he was the first to be cast as Robin Hood
Current Doctor Who Peter Capaldi will join the cast of exciting new talent in the opening episode of the series For Tonight We Might Die, followed by the second episode The Coach with the Dragon Tattoo.
The new series is set in Coal Hill Academy, a school which holds some very dark and deadly secrets in its shadows. As the new term starts, students are preparing for their Autumn Prom. But when the school comes under attack, four alienated students must form an unlikely alliance to defeat them. And this incursion is only the beginning.
Charlie (Greg Austin), April (Sophie Hopkins), Ram (Fady Elsayed) and Tanya (Vivian Oparah), assisted by their physics teacher Miss Quill (Katherine Kelly), are charged with a great responsibility by the mysterious alien known as the »

This fiercely intelligent British chiller from Scottish director Colm McCarthy, whose small-screen credits include Doctor Who, Sherlock and Peaky Blinders, breathes new life into age-old horror tropes, taking familiar fears of zombies, the apocalypse and eerie children and spinning them in surprising ways. Although writer Mike “Mr” Carey’s narrative about a fungal plague that turns victims into cannibalistic “hungries” occupies a post-28 Days Later landscape, the central obsessions explored here are closer to the identity crises of Never Let Me Go (both book and film), with a strong underlying strain of the very British weirdness of John Wyndham.
The budget may have been relatively constrained (£4.4m), but not so the ambition of the film-makers who conjure a gripping genre picture as fleet-footed as its nimbly marauding zombies, »

The BBC has announced that its upcoming Doctor Who spinoff Class will premiere on BBC Three online next month, with the first two episodes arriving on October 22nd. And that’s not all, as it’s also been announced that Peter Capaldi will make an appearance as the Twelfth Doctor in the opening episode, titled ‘For Tonight We Might Die.
“At last, we can tell you a little more about Class!” said series creator Patrick Ness. “Though there are still many, many secrets to come. Many. Like, a lot. But of course the Doctor is in episode one! That’s how these things are done. Truly, though, I can’t wait for everyone to see the show; we’ve worked so hard and I’m so proud of it.”

British viewers, you can mark your calendars for the debut of Doctor Who spin-off Class. Whovians on this side of the pond, you hang in there a bit longer. BBC announced today that Class will premiere on BBC Three on October 22. Meanwhile, all that BBC America will reveal is that the series will come to their network sometime in spring 2017, along with the return of Doctor Who. With the premiere update also came confirmation that the currently reigning Doctor, Peter Capaldi, will appear in Class’ first episode. One young cast member of the new show, Greg Austin, tweeted out a photo of him and Capaldi on set. Can Finally release this picture!

Good news, Whovians: we now know exactly when Class will be in session. U.K. fans will be able to catch the Doctor Who spinoff starting October 22 on BBC Three. U.S. fans, unfortunately, will have to wait a bit longer, as Class won’t hit BBC America until spring 2017. Whenever it reaches your country, though, you can count on the […]

Does Michael Fassbender sleep? Because he churns out films at a pace that suggests otherwise. And it's not like he's just phoning it in with these performances, either.
The latest Fassbender flick to hit will be Irish family thriller Trespass Against Us, in which Fassbender plays a man caught between his father's wish for him to continue the family outlaw business, and his desire to pass on a different legacy to his young son.
Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges, Calvary) co-stars as Fassbender's character's father and with these two Irish acting powerhouses in one film, Trespass Against Us is already something of a must-see for us.
ITV, Britain’s biggest commercial broadcaster, has ordered a second season of hit period drama “Victoria,” about the early years of Queen Victoria’s reign.
The show has become ITV’s top-rated drama of 2016 since its debut last month, and will be broadcast in the U.S. starting Jan. 15 on PBS, in the Sunday night “Downton Abbey” slot. The show stars Jenna Coleman of “Doctor Who” fame as the young monarch and Tom Hughes as her husband, Prince Albert.
“Even though she reigned in the 19th century, Victoria is a heroine for our times,” said screenwriter and executive producer Daisy Goodwin.
Coleman and Hughes have been confirmed to return for the second season, which will be written by Goodwin and produced by U.K. independent Mammoth Screen. Goodwin said that the new season will focus on the “very modern dilemma of how to juggle children with her husband and her job.”

Before bringing a hit video game to life this December with Assassin's Creed, Michael Fassbender will play a man trying to escape his family's criminal enterprise in Trespass Against Us. A24 has released the first trailer and poster for this thriller, which will debut on DirecTV through their deal with A24 on November 24, before hitting theaters sometime in early 2017. We also have the first poster, which pits Michael Fassbender's Chad Cutler against his nefarious father Colby, played by Brendan Gleeson.
Trespass Against Us is set across three generations of the Cutler family who live as outlaws in their own anarchic corner of Britain's richest countryside. Chad Cutler (Michael Fassbender) is heir apparent to his bruising criminal father, Colby (Brendan Gleeson) and has been groomed to spend his life hunting, thieving and tormenting the police. But with his own son, Tyson (Georgie Smith) coming of age, Chad soon finds himself »
A24 has released the first trailer for “Trespass Against Us,” Adam Smith’s upcoming thriller starring Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson. The film, which just had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, is due out in theaters in early 2017.
The film follows three generations of an outlaw family living in Britain’s countryside: patriarch Colby (Gleeson), heir apparent Chad (Fassbender) and young Tyson (Georgie Smith), whose future remains uncertain. “When Colby learns of Chad’s dreams for another life he sets out to tie his son and grandson into the archaic order that has bound the Cutler family for generations,” reads the official synopsis. “He engineers a spectacular piece of criminal business involving a heist, a high-speed car chase and a manhunt, which leaves Chad bruised and bloodied and with his very freedom at stake. »

Three months from now, Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson will be bound for the Spanish Inquisition as part of Justin Kurzel’s Assassin’s Creed movie, a lavish, star-studded tentpole that’s shouldering a fair amount of expectations – there’s even chatter of a sequel – ahead of release.
But the talented duo have another project cramming up the pipeline, and it’s worlds away from the cut-throat business of assassins. Entitled Trespass Against Us, Gleeson and Fassbender headline the pic as a father and son keeping a low profile in the British countryside as two wanted outlaws. Calling upon their native Irish accents, the duo belong to the seedy Cutler family in Trespass Against Us, which stands as the feature film debut of Adam Smith following his work across Skins and Doctor Who. Talent on both sides of the camera, then, though at times this new trailer struggles to separate itself from the pack. »

After Dwayne Johnson tweeted the first cast image from his “Jumanji” reboot, online users were quick to point out that former “Doctor Who” actress Karen Gillan sported some pretty skimpy clothing compared to her male co-stars. While Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Johnson look properly-dressed for a jungle adventure, Gillan is shown wearing a crop-top […] »

Here's one rumour that's turned out to be true: Matt Lucas will indeed return for the 2016 Doctor Who Christmas special. He'll reprise his Nardole character from last year's festive episode, The Husbands Of River Song, despite the fact he ended up inside a robot at the end of that one.
We already know that Nardole plays a sizeable role in 2017's Doctor Who series 10, and, with that in mind, it makes sense for Moffat to reintroduce him and recruit him to Team Tardis this yuletide, allowing more time for Pearl Mackie's incoming companion, Bill, to get a proper introduction in the series 10 premiere.
The news of Nardole's Christmas comeback was broken in Doctor Who Magazine issue 504 (on shelves now) and reported online by DoctorWhoTV.co.uk. »

Samsara simultaneously harks back to classic Red Dwarf while trying something new, resulting in some outstanding comedy moments...
Note: This is our spoiler-filled review of episode 2 of Red Dwarf XI, currently available on the UKTV Play app. Our review of episode 1, which aired on Thursday the 22nd of September on Dave at 9pm can be found here.
This review contains spoilers.
The television landscape has changed a lot since Red Dwarf made its debut back in 1988. One of the more interesting developments of the 21st century has been that, thanks in no small part to shows like Lost, non-linear storytelling is now as much a part of the language of television as the cliff-hanger or the third-act twist. In a series that has, with rare exceptions, always featured at least one of its regulars in any given scene, Samsara breaks with Red Dwarf convention in a major way. »
Starz, in association with Sony Pictures Television, has announced today that two key roles have been cast in Outlander Season 3.
Young Ian Murray is a tall, gangly Scottish lad with a heart of gold, a stubborn streak and a penchant for getting into trouble. Bursting with charm, he’s more like his adventurous, fierce uncle Jamie Fraser than his farmer father Ian – but when we meet him, he is still a very gawky boy.
However, he keeps trying to prove that he is a man and we will see him grow into quite a formidable one as the series evolves. »

MaryAnn’s quick take…
Stakes out its own fresh place in an Sf subgenre that is well played out, and rehumanizes it ways that are both extraordinarily moving and deeply unnerving. I’m “biast” (pro): desperate for stories about girls and women; big Sf geek
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
The Girl with All the Gifts opens with one of the most intense and disturbing sequences I’ve ever seen onscreen. Children kept in a bare, gray prison like Guantanamo Bay, lit only by harsh fluorescence; given disgusting things to eat; shouted at by adult guards with cruelty in their voices; strapped into wheelchairs à la Hannibal Lecter; pushed with careful, fearful precision to be lined up in a grim classroom for their daily lessons… and we dread to discover what those are to consist of. »

Netflix aired a very appropriate commercial during the Emmy Awards last night, where women ruled. Intelligence, motherhood, soul, superpowers, and more were praised. If you missed the big show be sure to check out Alan Sepinwall's review. But if you were watching live you probably caught this commercial in which Netflix applauded the women featured on the streaming service. The commercial also gave us footage from the upcoming American-British television drama The Crown from Peter Morgan. It's a 10-part series that features Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II and Doctor Who's Matt Smith as Prince Philip. Take a look... You know Netflix included Jessica Jones just so she wouldn't beat them up. Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany's win for Best Actress yesterday also afforded her time to share a similar sentiment about TV saying "I feel so lucky to be on a show that puts women at the center. »

The panel show has spawned books and apps – and become as significant a cultural export as Doctor Who. But can it survive the departure of its quizmaster of 13 years? Zoe Williams goes on set to find out
“We spend six months researching each show,” says James Harkin. “I think you can tell. I don’t know how you can tell, but you can. It feels like it shouldn’t make a difference, but somehow it does. And I think that’s the difference between Qi and other panel shows that do comedy.”
Harkin is one of “the elves” (or researchers) on Qi, which after 13 years on air is making the probably-scarier-than-anyone-would-admit change from Stephen Fry as presenter to Sandi Toksvig. “But then sometimes,” interjects Andrew Hunter Murray, another elf, “you see something that’s front-page news and think, ‘I’m having that.’”
I had a terrible crisis in my 40s, »
